Alright, so basically I'm looking at trying to start working with some indie labels in Australia. Two of the bands I'm working with later in the year are on this label and thus I am assuming it will be getting released by them, however it was the bands decision to work with me as I'm pretty sure they only have a distribution deal at this stage so they are paying for it themselves. I think my best option at this stage is to just do the absolute best job I can for these projects and just try to win their attention that way. I'm curious to those of you here who do work with labels how things got started for you. I know Joey got picked up by Rise through the work he did for The Devil Wears Prada, which is a fantastic story of success but I'm not quite that good haha. Fortunately though I'm the only engineer in the state who is out of their bedroom and working on what I like to call Rise Records-core which everyone seem to be playing at the moment, so I've got a bit of a niche. There's other engineers who focus more on REAL METAL but they flat out to refuse those bands as its more of a hobby for them. What I'm focusing on at the moment is updating my portfolio as quite frankly the mixes I have up at the moment suck and then finishing off my website, then perhaps emailing a bunch of different indie labels and just letting them know I exist. One other thing I have going for me is that I have residential facilities which I know is extremely important for getting bands out of the city to come and work with you. So yeah advice guys? Sorry if this doesn't make much sense.
